To mark the anniversary – just – of Jim Morrison’s death (he died in Paris on this day in 1971, aged just 27), I’d like to know which Doors songs you love and, if you’ve the capacity to use wild imagination and appreciate that covering a song doesn’t mean replicating it detail by minute detail or mimicking the original vocalist, which Doors song can you imagine David performing.
I reckon ‘Riders on the Storm’ would fit right in with some of Pink Floyd’s earlier, more experimental setlists. What do you think? It could have slotted into one of Barbet Schroeder’s films quite nicely, alongside a ‘Burning Bridges’ or ‘Cirrus Minor’.
Lastly, as I won’t be blogging tomorrow, Happy Independence Day to all residing in, or originating from, the USA. I’m confident that Jim Morrison is considered an American icon, but welcome your nominees in celebration of what the USA has given the world. (Bob Dylan will forever be the greatest gift of them all, of course…)
